Narrated by Ibn Abbas (ra) said: "Allah has preferred (faddala) Muhammad over all Prophets and over the dwellers of the heavens (the angels)." They said: "O Ibn Abbas, how did He prefer him to the dwellers of the heavens?" He replied: "Allah Most High said: ‘And one of them [the angels] who should say: Lo! I am a God beside Him, that one We should repay with hell” (21:29) but He said: ‘Lo! We have given thee (O Muhammad) a signal victory That Allah may forgive thee of thy sin that which is past and that which is to come, and may perfect His favor unto thee, and may guide thee on a right path’ (48:1-2)." They said: "And how did He prefer him over the Prophets?" He replied: "Allah Most High says: ‘And We never sent a messenger save with the language of his folk’(14:4) but He said: ‘And We have not sent thee (O Muhammad) save unto all mankind’ (34:28)."
